I just took a look in the FAQ's and found this to help you eliminate that message.

I guess you missed it earlier.

In regards to what it "IS" - it's the files.xml file that gets created in your show folder after you fill out the "File Options" form. It tells the webpage what the names of each song/file should be and who the artist is, and it uses the info you feed it to tag the MP3/Ogg files when they are created.

thank you for the response. i remember having filled out this step earlier, but i guess something must have gone awry on my part. i just did it again, hopefully that will solve the problem.

thanks again.
